    So for clarification... Are the seeds you are offering to trade being stratified in your fridge? Or are they being stored in your fridge?

    Huh? Why don't they need stratification? What qualities of your house negate the need for it? I'm confused...

    And by doing fine you mean they are sprouting and growing? Or they are just seeds still and haven't vanished?

    awguapp,
    What xvart and flytraplady are saying is that you need to store the seeds in a cold and moist (not just cold) environment in order to stratify the seeds. You can't just put them in the fridge for a month and call them stratified. They need to be put in a baggie with moist paper towel or sphagnum moss and then put in the fridge for a month to be properly stratified. Without proper stratification germination rates will be extremely low. Try reading up on stratification here http://www.carnivorousplants.org/see...Sarracenia.htm
